The ASEAN region experiences several socio-economic and environmental challenges brought on by rapid urbanisation, rising living standards, population growth, and climate change. Such challenges are severely impacting the region’s water access and long-term security. As a response to these challenges, governments have identified urban water demand management (WDM) as one of the measures of strategic importance. WDM aims to provide water users with efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable water supplies through various mechanisms.
